A special team from the Major Investigation Division (MID) has been called in to investigate an attack in August Town on Tuesday, January 1, which left two men dead.
Thirty-two-year-old Odane Markland otherwise called “Buss Head”, and 25-year-old Kevaughn Green otherwise called “Fry Eye”, of Goldsmith Villa, were killed by a group of men carrying high-powered assault rifles.
Crime scene investigators became alarmed after discovering a number of unusual spent shell casings on the scene.
This prompted the Police High Command to ask the MID to take over the investigation.
It is being reported that the casings recovered on the scene point to a new batch of weapons and ammunition deployed in August Town.
The ammunition and weaponry in the possession of the gunmen are highly unusual and have not been seen in Jamaica in many years.
